The
Project

National Malaria Elimination Program (NMEP) is a government initiative taken back in 2015 to eradicate malaria from Bangladesh. This program is conducted to supply test kits, medicine, and other preventive products to malaria-infected areas.


To successfully run the program the organization required a well-developed system to digitally manage their inventory, supply, and distributions, upload daily areawise data by the field workers, obtain the current condition of malaria infection and assess the condition to make plans for the foreseeable future. The system also needed to be designed in such a way that a large number of people of different backgrounds could access it from remote locations.


Dcastalia as a leading software company in Bangladesh had the honor to tag with the Program to develop their Logistic Management System(LMIS) along with the Management Information System(MIS). This ensured that the program runs smoothly all across the country with proper management of the logistics and information gathered.

  • System Architecture Design
  • DBMS Design
  • Website Development
  • System Development

To help Bangladesh to become a malaria-free country, we planned the project in a way that will aid our client to reach the ultimate goal. Logistics Management and Information System (LMIS) and Management and Information System (MIS) have been built in order to track the buying & distribution of medical supplies, and patient numbers. Two major systems are designed separately and made sure to be accessed from one point.

Technologies

This system has to handle a large number of data and users, which required us to choose the technologies very carefully. We used modern and the latest suitable technologies to ensure performance, security, and usability and made sure to optimize those for optimal performance.

Core
Features

Cross-Functional
Micro-Systems

To manage the supply chain and formulate & facilitate the program, we designed 2 separate and powerful microsystems: Logistic Management and Information System (LMIS) and Management and Information System (MIS). 


Both the microsystems consist of their own unique architecture which is carefully designed to help portray and manage complex sets of data. Users can manage inventory, track distributions and returns, and assess and monitor the infection rate by generating various reports. Powerful DBMS with optimized queries are set to handle complex distribution and return logic.

Access Control System For
Multiple User Type

The multiple microsystems are designed to be accessible for different user types with various permission parameters. We also had to be aware of the fact that these are national data that required optimum security measures which are put in place. 


We integrated powerful security tools and techniques to ensure the security of the system to protect financial data and valuable inventory item distribution. Well-managed validation checking logic and a strong authentication process are implemented for each user type to give them exclusive access to the system.

Smart Report Generation

The success of the program is highly dependent on various types of report that needs to be generated from the system. All the formulation and the facilitation of the program are planned on basis of these reports which required these data to be highly customizable and accurate.


High-level sorting techniques have been used to manipulate the data as required and generate reports by various parameters like time, location, date, etc. Complex filtering techniques are also implemented to filter a wide range of data.

Powerful DBMS
For Diverse Information

The system requires the storage of a vast amount of multitudinous data as the programs operate all over the country at different levels. This ranges from user data, patient data, supply data, etc.


The system and microsystem consist of a robust database that is designed to accommodate this vast amount of diversified data. The system is well capable to contain and organize this collection of data and serve a large number of users at once without any issue.

Challenges &
Our Approach

Ensuring Accessibility

The system is designed for both technical and non-technical people to access the platform from remote places around the country. It was highly required to ensure smooth and easy access to the system even with limited internet connectivity. Every day a large number of data is being uploaded to the system by a number of field workers from different locations.

Our Approach

While designing the system we kept in mind the different types of users from different backgrounds and ensured a user-centric approach. We also used different optimization techniques to optimize the codebase to reduce server requests for optimal speed and performance.

Complex Inventory Management Logic

The organization has to deal with a large number of medical supplies on a regular basis, starting from managing the inventory to tracking the distribution. The system needed to be designed to facilitate handling a large inventory with a return logic algorithm.

User Authentication for Separate Microsystem

LMIS and MIS being two different systems but linked together required us to combine their user's data sets. The authentication needs to be from one single source. We also had to be aware of the user authentication and validation process.

Our Approach

We linked both the user data set and an uncompromised authentication process. We connected the data sets with the help of cookie authentication and used an authentication gateway to merge them. We performed various steps to check user validation.

Key Numbers

Malaria is a major public health problem in Bangladesh affecting over 8% of the population in the country directly. The aim of NMEP is to eradicate malaria from the country and aid those who have been infected.
